And they all left Him and fled. Mark 14:50
Will you flee Jesus during your storm also? The disciples of Jesus, who spent over 3 years with him ,learning the Word of God and witnessing miracles, left him in a second as soon as trouble came around. At this point Jesus was being arrested and being taken away to be beaten and crucified. These same disciples who told Jesus they would lay down their lives for him, took off to save their own lives.
Does this happen to us? We know and love Jesus, but as soon as times get tough, we leave him to blame him for our troubles. Why are we so quick to lose faith during trials and temptations? Why do we always assume when bad things happen its Gods fault?
Peter promised Jesus he would never leave him, but as soon as Jesus was arrested he denied Jesus three times. This is the same Peter who confessed Jesus was the Son of God. What happened to Peter? Where was his faith?
Fear is a human reaction that takes over quickly, as soon as we are in an uncomfortable situation, our minds tell us to run. But we need to remember that our God is greater than any fear. Our God is greater than any trial or temptation. Instead of cutting and running, we need to remain in the eye of The Storm who is Jesus Christ Amen
